Run The Blades Half Marathon

Run the Blades is a totally unique event being held exclusively within the UK’s largest windfarm, Whitelee Windfarm (and it’s only 20 minutes from Glasgow)! With three distances (10K, half marathon and 50K ultramarathon) Run the Blades makes trail running accessible for runners of all fitness and experience levels. So you’ve bagged a few 10Ks but don’t fancy the big dunter just yet, then the half marathon is the race for you. The perfect distance to raise money for your favourite charity.

All three distances offer a challenging course across mixed moorland and forests past wind turbines that tower 140 metres above the trail. Fully supported by Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service you’ll maybe chance upon one of the hundreds of species of birds, adders or deer that live within the boundaries of the wind farm. On a clear day you’ll be able to see Glasgow and in the distance even the coast of Northern Ireland.
